It's more of a rivalry to the Blues than Detroit as well.

I think the sticking point about Western teams being afraid of losing ticket sales to Detroit remains. But at some point something has to be worked out for it to happen.
Well, with Detroit's talent finally drying up a bit, their days as the top draw in the West would have been coming to an end soon anyway. This probably isn't the issue it would have been just 2 or 3 years ago.
